Geekifying My Kids

Even though I am not a hardcore Star Wars fan, I enjoy the movies. It is definitely one of the more memorable movies from my childhood. And of course I love all of the robots that are in the movies! We introduced Star Wars to Emma awhile ago and she seemed to really like it. And even though Max has never seen it, he is immediately drawn to Darth Vader and storm troopers when he sees them in a store for some reason! I know he will love it when he is old enough.

I saw this set of Star Wars Little Golden Books and think it would make such a fun addition to our library. I am very selective about what books we actually own since I love our public library and make use of it so don’t feel the need to fill our house with books too. This would make a great gift for any Star Wars fans parents out there!

I was hoping there would be a version of Harry Potter like this as well but nope :( We do have the illustrated version which is really nice but I’m not sure how much it captures my daughter’s attention yet. Although it’s been almost a year since I tried reading it to her so I might try again soon.

If you’re a Harry Potter fan, it is definitely worth getting this version with or without kids!

The best part about being a parent is getting to mold your kids into whatever you want. Of course it doesn’t always happen that way but while they are this young, they are easily influenced because really, to them, you are the COOLEST PERSON ON EARTH! :) I am just doing my part in making them as cool as their mommy :) ha ha.

I’ve been slowly peppering Harry Potter into the girls’ childhood waiting to see if/when it will stick. I’m pretty happy to report that last year Aubrey started to come around and we’ve started reading the illustrated HP together but not consistently. Sydney not so much (yet), but she always says “why is it always Harry Potter?!” when I choose what to put on the TV. She’s exaggerating of course… and she’s onto me, lol.

And to add to my nerdy influence on Aubrey, she’s now very familiar with Sherlock too and is watching it with us lol.
